Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer has been making the headlines ever since he announced his retirement. He has been active on social media sharing his valuable thoughts on the game. Recently, Wasim Jaffer picked India’s best white-ball cricketer of all time.
Meanwhile, India over the years, have produced some of the finest players in white-ball cricket. From Sachin Tendulkar to modern-day Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, the current generation is blessed to see them dominate the game.
Jaffer picks India’s best white-ball cricketer
Tendulkar holds all possible batting records in both forms of the game. His record in ODIs is a staggering 18426 runs in 463 matches at an average of 44.83 with 49 centuries. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma has three double tons to his name and the only cricketer to achieve so.
Virat Kohli already has 43 ODI centuries and is the second in the chart after Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli so far has 11867 runs in 248 ODIs and still has a lot of cricket left in him. During a conversation with Crictracker, he was asked to choose among Tendulkar, Kohli, and Sharma for India’s best white-ball cricketer. Wasim Jaffer after a little hesitation settled for the current India skipper.
Meanwhile, speaking about the best opener partner he has batted with, Jaffer undoubtedly named Virender Sehwag. The former India opener was one of the most entertaining cricketers during his playing days. Stories of Sehwag singing while smashing the bowlers for boundaries are well-known among the fans.
“It has to be Virender Sehwag, purely because he was entertaining,” Jaffer said.
Recently, Uttarakhand appointed Wasim Jaffer as their head coach for the upcoming domestic season. A domestic stalwart, the cricketer from Mumbai has represented India in 30 Test matches.
